A LOT of work was done to the new score room at the Orange range last Saturday with Roger Bond and Doug Swain installing the lighting.
In the afternoon sport pistol and centrefire was shot with 30 precision rounds followed by the rapid fire section, with targets facing for three seconds and away for seven seconds.
Top service pistol shooter Dean Brus scored well in his first match with 276 (precision) and 279 (rapid) for 555/600. Daniel Barresi shot his PB 268-261/529. Djuro Cikaric 223-202/425 (centrefire), Roger Bond 149=185/334 (centrefire), Mel Johnston 131-179/310 (sport pitol).
Visitor from Bathurst club, Jason Rodwell, scored 350/600 in sport pistol.
David Oates shot a service pistol match on range two.
Probationary member Mitchell Meredith was put in with the other shooters to be the star of the day in his first competition. He scored low on precision with a 199 before a great improvement on rapid fire with 245 for a 444. This score would have put him in third place.
Dean Brus gave him some coaching and Maisie Harvey was range officer.
The club is still appealing to members or ex-members who have not received an invitation to the 40th anniversary shoot and dinner on October 30/31 to ring Maisie Harvey on 6365-9147. October 22 is the closing date.
